City Oilers put on a fourth quarter clinic to defeat KCCA Panthers, 72-54 in the National Basketball League on Sunday.

Three wins out of three, keep the Oilers with their 100% record, as they look hungrier than ever to win a ninth straight championship.

Jimmy Enabu led all scorers with 15 points with an efficient 7-11 in the field along with five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minute of action.

New acquisition Titus Lual says that good start to the season is helping the new players settle in better

"It definitely helps the new players on the team settle in faster when the team is winning games, hopefully more of the same,” he told Pulse Sports.

The scoring load was once again shared by the champions as Ivan Muhwezi, Fayed Bbaale and Jimmy Enabu all recorded double digit points.

KCCA put up a spirited performance as Rin Tueny Mabor and Wilson Otweyo both scored 10 and 14 points respectively.

They defeated the Oilers in the third quarter, 24-16 but were ultimately undone by two single digit scoring quarters.

City Oilers will be favourites to make it four out of four wins when they face newly promoted  Rez Life Saints on Wednesday.
